The United States government has claimed to have negotiated a significant cut to the United Nations budget.

The US Mission to the UN said the 2018-2019 budget would be slashed by over $285m (£213m) and reductions would also be made to the UN's management and support functions.

But the announcement did not make clear what effect the budget reduction will have on the US contribution.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, said the "inefficiency and overspending" of the organisation is well-known.
